Please mister can't you help me try to find my baby's house
It's three in the morning in the pouring rain
I can't find the house and I forgot the number
But I gotta give her these roses to relieve her pain
Don't laugh . . . just tell me you've been there before
So we fight but we fight every evening
And I tell you every morning I just love her more

And life goes on . . . filled with disasters and friction
And life can be strange
But love can be stranger than fiction
Only love can be stranger than fiction

Excuse me operator . . . tell me what time it is
Me and my lover been in bed all day
I think I strained a muscle
I didn't know I had
And tell me what day it is anyway
Don't laugh . . . just tell me you hear what I say
I love her so much I don't even know what planet I'm on
Love her so much I wish she'd just go away

And life goes on . . . filled with bizarre contradictions
And life can be strange
But love can be stranger than fiction
Only love can be stranger than fiction

I know that sometimes love goes
But sometimes it comes back to getcha
And when love grows
It grows like a flower or grows like a tumor
Love shows that God has a sense of humor

Life goes on . . . ever immune to prediction
And life can be strange
But love can be stranger than fiction
Only love can be stranger than fiction
